So good, in fact, that it has garnered them a spot in the competition for the Idea Village’s 2015 Big Idea Challenge. The idea is a compact hydroponic gardening unit, designed to allow residents to grow fresh vegetables, even in apartments. The winner of the competition is awarded a $25,000 grant to further the development of their product.
